My Favorite shorts? Hot pants. Got these black ones from J. Crew. They are like tailored, perfectly fitting shorts that can go casual or business casual. I love wearing them with heels or blazers like I did here. The girly, tiny white polka dots and black high collared shirt is a nice juxtaposition to the short’s length.
I think one of the secrets to great style is in combining opposites. Feminine pieces with masculine pieces, brights with neutrals, and in the case of this outfit, something sexy (like shorts) with something modest (like a 3/4th sleeve, high collar blouse). Too much of one thing – sexy + sexy, sometimes translates to = trashy. That’s why if you have a lot of leg showing…
you want to hide the cleavage. Or if you have a plunging back, you want to have a very modest front.
Style is also about surprises and unexpected details.
